Lastspitze (peak load) is a smart meter which visualises energy consumption in households. The center gives feedback about general consumption, several smaller displays are representing single rooms and single devices.
Lastspitze doesnŽt use the standard measurement unit kw but an intuitive notification with membrane displays. The bigger the consumption the deeper sinks the belonging membrane in its body. To show that great consumption generates peak load in the grid the sinking membrane shows a peak load in its middle.
To explain the opportunity of decentralized energy production the center peak can be manipulated by generating own energy.
